When it's hot out, the last thing you want are clingy, sweaty clothes sticking to your body. As the forecast for the foreseeable future is basically hot AF, now's the perfect time to invest in some clothes with airflow. Think: floaty dresses, swingy shorts and skirts, and baggy tops that catch the summer breeze and look effortlessly cool while, you know, also keeping you effortlessly cool in the blazing heat. Shop our favorite warm weather-friendly clothes for summer below.

The best loose-fitting clothing for summertime

Summersalt The Tiered Ruffle Midi Dress — $115.00

This is the kind of dress you’ll have on rotation for the rest of the summer. With its playful ruffle shoulders and ease of a button front, it’s comfy enough to nap in (although if you’re looking for some really, really top-notch nap dresses, we’ve got suggestions) but structured enough for work or trip to the beach. Made from eco-friendly deadstock fabric and available in sizes XS to 2X, you’ll never want to take this dress off.

Farm Rio Black Spotted Bananas Midi Dress — $230.00

Farm Rio’s playful prints never fail to spark joy, and this one is a particularly great serotonin-booster. A dress adorned with bright yellow bananas? We’re grinning just thinking about it. The easy-breezy fit and puff sleeve add to the whimsy, and it’s a great piece to add to your wardrobe if you’re looking for more statement-makers. Get yours in sizes XS to XL.



Faithfull The Brand Sereno Shorts — $149.00

These cotton poplin shorts have the aspirational vibe of someone who tends to a small grove of citrus trees in their backyard every day. Lightweight and made with an elastic waistband to ensure 100 percent comfort, these will definitely be in your warm weather wardrobe rotation. They’re available in sizes XS to XXXL.

Staud Cleo Dress — $315.00

Bring a pop of color into your wardrobe without going full-on banana print (we love you though, banana dress) in this floaty A-line tiered midi dress. It’s accented with colorful piping, and has a loose—but not baggy—silhouette. It’s also available in a more colorful turquoise, pink, orange, and yellow iteration, and from sizes XS to XL.

Madewell Hilltop Shirt — $80.00

This airy top is the perfect companion to some high-waisted cutoffs. It’s available in sizes XXS to XXL, with some prints also available in plus sizes. The pictured print is a bestseller; it also comes in an assortment of other colors and prints, like neon windowpane and a light blue stripe.

Zelie for She Wild Oversize Maxi Dress — $119.00

This printed dress can be worn with out without the belt—either way, it’s a perfect throw-on-and-go outfit option. And, like all the best dresses, it has pockets. It’s available in sizes 1X to 3X, and also comes in a lilac color.

Everlane The Weekend Tiered Dress — $60.00

Everlane’s The Weekend midi dress offers you a truly relaxed fit that’s both effortless and comfy. It’s made of 100 percent cotton that’s got a lived-in feel, and you can easily dress it up with some jewelry or heeled sandals if you so choose. Sizes range from XS to XL.

Coyuchi Solstice Organic Romper — $68.00

Available in a dusty rose and muted black (and in sizes XS to L), this romper is like wearing next to nothing. Made of a buttery organic cotton jersey material, the jumpsuit features adjustable straps, subtle V-neck, and a casual cropped leg. Bonus: Coyuchi’s fabrics are Fair Trade certified.

Universal Standard
Universal Standard Eden Twill Pull-On Pants — $138.00

If you’re in the market for a pair of work pants that are *actually* comfortable and look supremely sleek, we love Universal Standard’s pull-on pants which honestly feel like sweatpants but look like trousers (yes, we said “trousers”). Made from a soft, lightweight twill fabric, these pants feature an elastic waistband for comfort, and have both front and back pockets. Get them in sizes 00 to 40.
